Today’s Coveted Working Look: Dune Platter Booties

by Jordan Zeman | August 15th, 2014   

Thin heels can be treacherous. One wrong step or sidewalk crack can mean a seriously embarrassing (and seriously painful) fall. When you are already late for work, rushing to catch a bus or train, you most certainly do not want to be worrying about your ankles or that expensive latte in-hand.

For the working lady who likes more support, there are the Dune Platter Booties. They offer a thick, stacked heel to help keep you upright – even when the weather starts to make roads wet and icy. The heel is heavy, but also has a pleasing tapered shape.

These boots are a pretty solid dupe for the much coveted, much worn Acne Pistol Boot but at a fraction of the cost. While the originals can run you a whole paycheck, the Dune version clocks in at a reasonable $160. The cheaper price does not mean you are sacrificing quality, however. Both options are made of genuine leather.

The Dune booties also feature the long tassel zipper adornment that gives a great motion to the shoe. They unzip all the way to the foot bed so getting them on and off is a snap. Also, the almond toe shape is flattering while not being too extreme or trendy.

These booties fit close to the ankle, meaning work pants can hang over top. They would make a great, sturdier shoe for a classic black suit. For the weekend, these booties give torn jeans a rock star edge, or look super cute with thick, scrunched socks for the colder months.

Whatever your style, these classic booties from Dune will help you stay balanced during your day.
